2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs 2017 Ford F-150
If you are comparing new pickups, you've probably considered a light duty truck. Making up a large portion of the truck market, a light duty truck is perfect for those who only have light or personal commercial truck needs, such as hauling a small amount of building materials for a DIY project or helping your buddy move a couch. Light duty trucks are also great for an everyday runner because they use less gas than a heavy-duty and can fit in more parking spaces.
The 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 and the 2017 Ford F-150 are great examples of two popular light duty trucks that are easy to maneuver, yet powerful enough to get the job done. They also don't skimp out on the luxury features, such as built-in 4G WiFi in the Silverado and an optional reverse sensing system in the F-150.
